    xdp6 Topmost layer gets obstructed

    I'm racking my brains but can't seem to find a solution to the following.

    Xara Web Designer 6 Pro.

    Despite having placed the bulldog image graphic at the very top of my layers, when displayed, the bottom layers partially cover this topmost image.

    ? ? ?

    File attached.

    Thank you all.

    I'm using XDP6 here for the screen shot though that shouldn't matter...

    I am not noticing what you are describing. Is the screen shot as it should be?

    Take care, Mike

    Question Re: Topmost layer gets obstructed

    Thanks for the attempt Mike.

    I've attached a screenshot from Xara preview mode. When you hover and click on any of the buttons on the left, a corresponding image should pop up but not cover the USMC logo on the bottom right.

    As I mentioned earlier, the logo is residing on its own layer at the very top of the stack.

    I've done this countless times before having used both Xara and CoreDraw since the early 90s. I've never encountered this before.

    I don't use Xara for web sites...but it seems to me that a pop-up layer will always overlay something already displayed.

    Someone else is gonna have to figure this out. I don't know if adding a z-order to the bulldog layer will be a solution or not. However, that is one means of making sure menus don't hide behind flash (and other objects) objects on a page in a traditional html site.

    Take care, Mike

    Mwenz has it.

    Give the image the name "ddog" and add the following code to the "head" on all pages.

    Code:
    <style type="text/css">
    #ddog {
    z-index: 100;
    }
    </style>
    You will also need to force Xara to export it as a .png - Web properties >> image
